1:1 How to deal with repairs, theft, insurance…

Going 1:1 is kicking up some important questions. We plan on having parents and students sign a User Agreement, but are we really going to charge the students for repairs? What about theft of the device? What is they lose a charger?

Insurance – since the cost of the Chromebook itself is low, it does not appear that taking out insurance or extra warranty on the devices would make sense.

Repairs – most of the repairs will be completed by our IT department at no cost to the student. If the evaluation shows malicious damage to the device I think the student should be charged.

Theft – any theft of a device will be filed with the schools Resource Officer. Unless it can be proved that the student was negligent, the student will not be charged. This would be handled on a case by case basis.
